what are zeitgeist pants, you ask?
are they pants that represent the "spirit of our time"? well yeah. sorta.
'zeitgeist' is actually a punk rock biker bar here in sf that is as low-key and unpretentious as you can get. however, as i'm neither punk rock nor a biker, most of my clothes are not very zeitgeist-esque.
i can be low-key and unpretentious, though, and so i have this pair of baggy, olive green jeans that i wear most every time i go to zeitgeist. and so i call them my zeitgeist pants.
now, these pants are a large size. and they were a tiny bit big for me when i moved to sf 3 years ago. and then they were less big. and then i couldn't fit into them anymore. and then, after last year's weight loss, i could wear them again comfortably. phew! so comfortably, i wore them all last summer for every group outing to zg.
tonight, i am meeting a friend at zg--the first time i've been there in months. and i decided to wear my zg pants.
i am thrilled to report that as of today, my zg pants are definitely, officially too big for me. they are not quite falling down, but i can pull these off without unbuttoning them (and they are jeans!).
so tonight will (hopefully) be the last time i ever wear these pants (ever). and when i return home, i can take them off, tuck them away, and officially start my "fat clothes" collection....it's the new zeitgeist.
